Projector only displays desktop wall paper not laptop images


stop the dual monitor moded and it will project what is on the Desktop screen

for this right click on desktop -> properties -> (on the window) Settings here take away the check box for "Extend my Windows desktop to this monitor" and you can have what ever is displayed on your desktop on the screen

but if you keep the the existing setup then you can just drag the windows to the right or left edges and it will move on to the screen and you can use the projector image as an extended monitor, this will be useful when you want to have your presentation and your background work/ Document seperate from the viewing audience, try it you may like it

cheers

Screen does not work any more. Got a new LCD but still no picture.


you said that you want a display card. first no extra card can be added to the laptop. that is not possible. and second if your lcd is not working then the inverter card might be gone. it is a small card which converts dc to high voltage ac so that the screen can be back lit and run. if this has gone it can be replaced and you can again restore ur screen.

you can check the working of the graphic card of you laptop by connecting external monitor. if that also not working then you need to replace ur motherboard. these are the solutions.

so in order to make sure your motherboard is ok. just connect an external monitor. and you cannot upgrade your graphic card as it is final in laptop.no upgrades for that.
